On October 1, 2020 Grenoble INP won the “Most Committed School Award” for its Genre INP’lication project at the CDEFI* 10th annual Ingénieuses women in engineering competition.
The award-winning project to improve gender representation is led by Céline Ternon, who heads gender equity programs at Grenoble INP. Genre INP’lication encompassed awareness-raising activities at several Grenoble INP schools. The goal is to get students thinking about gender stereotypes. Although progress is being made at engineering schools, deep-rooted inequalities persist in the workplace.
At Phelma, students gathered to share and discuss their experiences. Second-year students came together in February for an event that included a lecture on the benefits of diversity and inclusion and five workshops on a variety of topics, including gender equity.
